A magnificent hiking experience will take us to a castle considered one of the most magical places in Spain: it is located in the area of Cortes de Pallás, in the Umbría de Chirel and offers a unique cultural heritage and impressive viewpoints. This amazing medieval castle was, in ancient times, a key place for the control of trade on the Júcar route. Today, it is a fortress on the red heritage list, i.e. in serious danger, and is undergoing extensive restoration. The fortress dates back to the 15th century and historical sources from 1349 praise the importance of the site for its strategic location and its perfectly integrated form in the geography of the territory. To reach this enchanted fortress you will feel as if you were living the adventures of a fairy tale: a river cruise for 30km and then we will go deep into the dense vegetation.
